The main goal of this report is to address the implementation of Augmented Reality (AR) technology in a university teaching context using different mobile devices. The specific contents and evaluation methodologies have been developed in the field of building engineering degree, where this technology offers potential advantages in the spatial training processes. The objective is to evaluate the system usability and measure academic performance improvement by using Hand-Held AR (HHAR) in educational environments related with the field of architecture, civil and building engineering. This method is validated through a case study where building engineering students were able to visualize a virtual complex models process overlapped onto a real environment. The results obtained from the students’ PRE and POST tests as well as questionnaire responses show high qualification levels in effectiveness, efficiency and satisfaction. In addition, a significant improvement was found in the overall performance of the students of the experimental group.
